Filmmakers in attendance. Film program will be followed by Q&A.

Ashley Chea is a Cambodian American basketball phenom. Home Court, filmed over three years, is a coming-of-age story that relays the highs and lows of her immigrant family, surmounting racial and class differences, as well as personal trials that include a devastating knee injury. Despite the intensity of basketball recruiting, Ashley’s humor shines through and her natural talent inspires the support of those around her.

With the pressure of being one of the top basketball recruits in the country, tensions rise as Ashley decides between college offers.
